I'll have to go back and watch that one again, I don't remember it. Do you happen to have the season and episode handy?
I think it's episode 89 or right in the immediate area. Been binge watching. Season 3.
I'm getting ditzy in my old age. If there are 23 eps. to a season it might be season 4. Watching 3-4 eps. a night has me a bit foggy.
On "The Curse of Oak Island" (the expert!) Gary Drayton dug up a coin with a square hole in the middle (Woo woo!). He identified it as European when in fact, it was Oriental.
That is when I stopped watching pawn stars, and just assumed any other "coin stuff" on tv the writers will simply get wrong. Even Percy Jackson movies have the silver drachms gold for some reason. That writer is usually pretty decent about getting history right.
I enjoy watching Pawn Stars except it kind of sucks that its all staged lol.
I watched that episode the other day lol. On top of that Rick offered way less because the coin was "cleaned." And the coin looked completely fine.
Really 99% of the viewers won't care. I just watch for the antiques.
Remember the episode when a person with a liberotas Americana and half disme came in that was intreasting.
People buying coins from HSN.
There's some nicer ones listed on Ebay for ~$1300-$1700.
Would you watch it if it wasn't staged? Week after week of them sitting around hoping that something interesting would walk in? In the meantime buying common everyday "stuff". Would you tune in to watch that?
And then it pans over some money.
But wait! Those big-head $10s could NOT have been printed before 1992.
I just tried that outside with a cull Peace Dollar (same size as Morgans and SLDs of the the time period) You’re right! It was loud and heavy and scratched the desk. Fortunately the desk is junk anyway and I’m taking it to the dump.
Follow up... Check out episode 100 (Season 5-Ep. 11) as it continues on about the 1943 D bronze cent but the mistakes are more glaringly obvious. The Denver Mint gets robbed by Redington.
